Program launched April 1, 2021

Staring in April 2021, you can drop off certain leftover pesticides, toxics, corrosives, flammable liquids and physically hazardous products for free in Saskatchewan. The province’s new household hazardous waste (HHW) program will initially be partnering with municipalities and local governments to provide collection services through one day collection events, free of charge to consumers. To find out if your community is hosting a household hazardous waste collection event please use our recycling locator tool.
